It’s about Free Banking Technology. For Everyone!

Imagine: I2P (aka “Darknet”), a highly energy-efficient, new and fully distributed storage engine, some basic banking business logic and a fresh user interface.

Result: a highly privacy-respecting, in theory secure, yet very slow, personal bank. Meet – the first non-profit, non-corporate, very-small-tech and research-driven association developing “Free Banking Technology – For Everyone”. All licensed under AGPLv3+.

The presentation is about the technology stack of the truly distributed free banking technology “DIVA”. It’s also about the fact that “distributed technology” does not offer anything like a “business model” in the old-fashioned-cloudy way. It’s about the overlay network “I2P”. It’s about the distributed storage engine “Iroha” and the challenges with a very slow network. It’s about banking business logic, the user interface and its challenges being fully distributed. And it’s about the research co-operations in Switzerland.

Who develops DIVA.EXCHANGE?

People who want to know whether decentralized and consistently distributed technology that protects the privacy of users works and is beneficial.

How is DIVA.EXCHANGE developed?
